To me that sounds about right. 300 wsm seems to be the new caliber most talked about, but there aren't that many "new Cals" anyway. And the fact that the 300 wsm pretty well covers everything in North America that deserves shooting, it is and will be discussed in great lengths for a long time

I'd give the edge to the 300 but sure hear of a lot of the 270 short mag users

I'd agree with Don as well. The 270 WSM is very well thought of and probably every bit as popular as the 300. Maybe due to the general opinion that the 300 is big enough that you are never undergunned for anything, but the 270 is still enough for most everything but more pleasant regarding recoil?

hightopoutfitter,

Like your setup and really like your bull. I just set my son up with that exact combo but with a VX3 3x9. With Boss. Shoots like a dream, but a bit loud. Now we just need to get him a tag for '09.

How do you like the Boone and Crockett reticle? Do you use it much?
